SENIOR STATE TEAM TRIALS 2018
This year, the VWA Men’s & Women’s Senior State Teams are not competing in the Australian Volleyball League (AVL) due to the heavy financial burden on the WA athletes and the 2018 restructure of the league. Instead, we are currently planning a back-to-back weekend competition with South Australia, who also withdrew from the AVL this year. This competition will involve one weekend event in Perth from November 16th-18th, and one weekend event in Adelaide from November 24th-26th. We’ve had expressions of interest from teams from New Zealand, Tasmania and India to participate in an alternative event structure this year, and we hope to provide an exciting opportunity to compete while we reconsider our participation in the AVL for 2019.
Trial details for 2018 are as follows:
• St Mary’s Anglican Girls’ School, 75 Elliott Rd, Karrinyup WA 6018
• Saturdays from the 11th of August – 1st of September, for a total of 4 trials.
• Women – 8:00am – 10:00am
• Men – 10:00am – 12:00pm
Log on to your VWA Member Portal to register for trials by this Friday 10th August. The registration form is called Senior State Team Trial Registration 2018.
Please note that trial exemptions will be reviewed on a case by case basis for athletes who have been selected to the AJVC State Team and who are currently in Year 12 completing their ATAR examinations.
If you are unable to attend any trials or have any questions about the 2018 VWA Senior State Team, please contact the State Teams Coordinator, Jackie Tamburri at [email protected]
